A wonderful post by the inestimable Rosabeth Moss Kanter – on the power of old ideas.
Suppressing ideas is an anathema to me. More examples immediately come to mind: of a hard disk manufacturer that had better technology but left it on the shelf while competitors with more open minds leapt ahead. Or of the Lego of old where according to Jake McKee all ideas became unwelcome.
We need ideas NOW like never before. Let’s not suppress them.
